Yes, when I am running it like `bash ./configure ...` that "command not found" line is still there.

Full command is:
bash ./configure --enable-media=gst,ffmpeg --enable-renderer=agg --enable-device=egl,vaapi,x11 --enable-jemalloc --disable-cygnal --enable-ssl --disable-kparts3 --enable-pch --without-gconf --enable-sound=sdl --disable-ghelp --disable-docbook --enable-npapi --enable-extensions=gtk,dbus --enable-gui=gtk,kde4 --disable-dependency-tracking --disable-testsuite --disable-cgibins

P.S. I guess I was too frustrated trying to make things work when I posted this bug. The ./configure does not fail because of that "or: command not found" it fails because it is unable to locate npapi-sdk which is a topic for another bug report. But the issue with that `or` is definitely there as well.

Does it also fail when running the script via bash ?
ie: bash configure ...

Line 50441 whereabouts are:
echo "`echo "Install it from http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/xulrunner" | fold -s -w 62 | sed 's/^/ /'`" >&$pkg_out_fd

echo " or .deb users: `echo "apt-get install xulrunner-dev" | fold -s -w 48 | sed 's/^/ /' | tr '\n' '#' | cut -b 33- | tr '#' '\n'`" >&$pkg_out_fd
echo -n " xulrunner-dev" >> "$deb_dest"

echo " or .deb users: `echo "apt-get install firefox-dev" | fold -s -w 48 | sed 's/^/ /' | tr '\n' '#' | cut -b 33- | tr '#' '\n'`" >&$pkg_out_fd
echo -n " firefox-dev" >> "$deb_dest"

These are generated from the following configure.aс lines:

PKG_ERR([No xulrunner development package is installed!])
PKG_SUGGEST([Install it from http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/xulrunner])
DEB_INSTALL([xulrunner-dev]) or

As you can see there is that "or" in configure.ac after the first DEB_INSTALL macro. Please fix.
